The Ladies Guild Annual Pre-Christmas Planning Session – COMEDY ABOUT women’s groups

comedy about women's groups


Without each other, they’re just reminded of how lonely they really are. Together, they’re exposed to how annoying they can be. In, The Ladies Guild Annual Pre-Christmas Planning Session, the ladies take pride in meeting up every year, to serve the charities of the world. Making actual money (in the form of donations) is the goal, of course but it’s also a great opportunity to come to terms with their losses. In one act, the dramedy also introduces us to Linda, who is new to the life of a widow but well-versed in the language of sisterhood because that’s what the Ladies Guild… really is in this comedy about women’s groups.

This play points a seasonal finger at the typical busybodies one always finds in places such as church groups, parents associations and other such societies. ‘Tis the season to be jolly! Or at least, to try.

Le Jeu Espion (The Spy Game) WWII Comedy Spoof



The time? World War 2. The place? A little not so innocent French cafe. The Genre? A very, very silly WWII Comedy Spoof.

Now, listen carefully – for I shall say this once only. The French resistance have hidden a secret code inside a painting known only as “The Singing Bovine.” A local street artist, Etienne (a.k.a. Caroline) whose mustache is definitely not fake has the painting. All you need to do is to whisper the secret password to Etienne and she (sorry, he) will give the painting to you. The war will be won today!

Now – do not let the painting get into the enemy’s hands! Beware of the Nazi’s, and don’t trust that Italian or his little Russian friend, either. They all want the painting and will do their best to get their hands on it.

Le Jeu Espion plays homage to the great Allo Allo British Television series and its fans will love its similar feel. A great one act festival play.

Irish Jack – family comedy-drama script about marrying outside your culture

script about marrying outside your culture


It was an evening like any other in the Goldberg household as Papa, Momma, Gram, and the children, Joe and Miriam, settled down to eat their supper. Papa was his usual content self, Momma cooked an
outstanding meal as always, Gram was as curious and as talkative as ever and the kids were taunting each other as per the norm. Then Joe got up from the table, a few seconds after he had just sat down.
He told Papa he was going to quickly grab some cigarettes. He told Momma he would be right back.

He never returned. Three years later his family discovers that he is alive, well and performing as an Irish comedian. Joe Goldberg (Jewish Joseph Goldberg) is posing as an Irishman. They cannot believe it.

In this drama, with but seven scenes, the Goldberg’s must come to terms with the loss of their child who is far from dead, the acceptance of things foreign to them but a part of his identity and a new meaning to the word

This is Irish Jack O’ Reilly; lost but not wandering in this family comedy – drama script.
